Yayoi Kusama Exhibition
This event has ended.
Kusama’s figurative works appear to be high heels, pumpkins and butterflies at a glance. These images, which are recognized as Kusama’s icons, suddenly emerged in the late ’70s. However, once you cut the face of her work into small pieces in something like a jigsaw puzzle, you just see large or small dots and spreading nets with regularity.
In the ’60s, Kusama influenced practically every Minimalist, Pop and New York School artist. After returning to Japan, she did not know where to put herself in the Japanese art world.
Takeda Art Co. presents the following works which were painted in her prime.
We display “Coffee Cup” of a size 100 in 1980, presented at her first solo exhibition at Fuji TV Gallery in 1982. In addition, we present some 6 or 7 works such as “Dress” and “Necktie” 1982 which are made with a collage. Her some 10 works on canvas, including paintings from the ’90s to the recent 2000s, are featured. About 10 pumpkin sculptures are also displayed.
